mmm. i am against yahoo on a number of grounds, but...

actually, you can "add" ten names to the list every day. as well as
invite however many you please. and, you don't need a yahooID to get
mail, as long as you don't want to access that mail via a yahoo
website. you can have the messages emailed to any address.  i do that
for aesthetic reasons and practical.
   i keep my own archives, and i prefer plain text without bells and
whistles and colours. i have enough of those things everywhere else.
context dependency, overrated i know.

good to see the debate on freedom to choose now.

or, our is it our non freedom to choose -  something to do with
control over the means of re-production and distribution.
